Governor Nasir El-Rufai vows prosecution
Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-Rufai has vowed to prosecute those behind the crisis in southern Kaduna, just as he exonerated himself of any complicity.
The governor, who stated this while receiving the Kabiru Gaya-led Senate Ad-hoc Committee on Southern Kaduna yesterday at the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Government House, noted that no patriotic chief executive would allow his state to be on fire without taking action.
While regretting that the pogrom was prolonged by the non-prosecution of the sponsors over the years, the governor charge the committee to see the reality of what is happening in southern Kaduna advising it not to believe anyone based on his credibility or apparent credibility.
According to him, even the figures released by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on the impasse were those of six local councils and involved trapped Christians, Muslims and traditionalists.
